So I'm looking for a job, any job, regardless of how shitty the pay is, just to keep people (mom) quiet (not nagging me). Currently 24yo with a highschool diploma.

conditions:
  1. little to no contact with customers
  2. little to no contact with bosses
  3. barely anything to do, allowing me to listen to music or browse 420chan if I feel like it
  4. steady if possible

doesn't matter if I get paid in peanuts. Ideas? all suggestions are appreciated.

sell drugs. other than that janitorial work is good if you can find the right place. although it does require actual work. or become a manager at a fast food chain, the managers at mcdonalds never did anything at all when i worked there and made 40k+ a year.

Sounds like a night security guard or something like that. I worked the night desk at a gym for a while and I just sat behind the desk all night. The most I had to to was throw some towels in the washer one in a while. People who work night shifts tend to get paid a little more than day shift employees do too.

I do the night cleaning one night a week at my local mall. YEah it does require some work, but i don't have to talk to anyone if i don't want to. I do, but when i was really quiet and unconfident a year or two ago it worked out well. I just listened to music and podcasts while i worked. it's piss easy. doesn't even feel like work now that i'm so good at it.

i had a pretty chill security gig at this bank that was under construction basically worked from 4pm-12am. sat in a chair while tradesmen finished their jobs and left then listened to podcasts and read till midnight. occasionally a supervisor would stop by unannounced so you gotta make sure you're not sleeping but they rarely ever came by and every hour you'd have to call in to a number and press a number on the phone just to let them know your safe and shit it was pretty decent made $12 an hour and they had construction lights and space heaters set up for me so i was pretty comfortable.

Pizza delivery driver. Pays surprisingly well and is easy as all shit. Just gotta have a car. You only have to deal with customers when handing over the food, they give you tips (though you have to be nice to them to get tips). You're only back at the shop long enough to grab more deliveries. The majority of the time is spent driving around listening to music. I make anywhere from $12-20 an hour when I work.

I found a way to do just that recently. You rent a basic server for say $20 a month, and start 10 RuneScape members account at $7.95 a month each. Then you use a free bot to run those accounts for around 18 hours a day. You can easily make 300k RuneScape gold per account per hour, so 10*18*30*300k=1,620m per month. At current rates you can probably sell gold in bulk to Asian gold farmers for about $0.30/m, so you'd be making around $500 in revenue each month. Subtract server and membership costs ($100 per month in total), and you make $400 a month with minimal work (basically just checking up on the accounts through VNC and transferring all the gold they made every week or so). The profit may be a bit less because of accounts getting banned but the ban rates for these types of things are fairly low. I'm working on implementing this shit for myself but I'm too busy with school work at the moment.

There is a few things you can do that are less than legal which are little work with high profit margins and require near minimal interaction with any other people. These are what I have thought of;

Theft. Be a bad ass thief. I mean learn things like basic safe and lock cracking, what tools are useful/useless, how to case a business/home for biggest pay be it cash or merch, tricky ways to enter locked places, how to make costumes, and fast stealth. This option REQUIRES nearly zero interaction with other people.

Grow drugs and food. There can be huge money made growing certain crops depending on where you live. You could at least partially live off of what food you grow. Saving space is key. Buy some really cheap land somewhere, plant any food that will grow, find drugs that will grow well marijuana and poppies are not to picky about location, and you can always sell surplus drug/food for real money. Will likely require some human interaction.

More legally you could with some ease become a park or forest ranger. This will require large amounts of time alone in deep woods or alone in a ranger station, or maybe leading trail guides/hikes/walks. You will still need to buy yourself food and shit so there is a decent amount of interaction.

Have a picture of some psychedelic cacti I'm growing. Oh and I only read the op.

Living off the dole? ROFL. So as a disabled man, I should just rot in the streets to DIE? I only get $800 a month. I entirely depend on my rich relatives otherwise I would be fucked.

I am not berating anyone. I just feel sorry that this is the most overworked nations in the world. You should be able to earn $1600 a month by working 12-15 hrs a week. Many countries really are like this. It's just a shame because people go out and kill themselves or become depressed. I actually have no hate or feel any kind of superiority. If it came off like that I am sorry.

I blame society, specifically American society, not him. People need more leisurely time. It's not healthy the way things are.

TY. That's all I am saying. American society is messed up badly. Japan is next in line to being overworked, and we all know that Japan is facing emotional rot; it even caused hikkomori which basically means that a large % of the Japanese people are shut-ins because things are a bit too stressful so they hide away.

$1600 a month really isn't a lot. It's just enough to live a basic existence. Rent for 1 bedroom is about $1100 + 200 food + 50 cable (internet not tv) and 50 phone + $100 electric. If you're lucky, you have $100 to spend on everything other than the bills. Yeah, modern society has electricity, internet, phone but those things are becoming the standard and should probably no longer be seen as a luxury.

I would probably give electricity away to live like a Victorian aristocrat.

(Cue screen blurring and harp riff while I look upward)

  1. I could smoke weed legally.

2. I could ride a penny farthing (or at least some kind of velocipede)

3. I know about germs and STDs, so I wouldn't get syphilis.

4. I would know that things like chloroform, asbestos etc. were bad for you so I would be better able to avoid an early death.

5. I could literally buy my friends. I'd go to the slave market, pick my favorites, and instead of making them work the fields or whipping them to death, we'd get high together and talk philosophy. To entertain ourselves, we'd LARP and play board games. Perhaps we'd even form a rock band involving cellos and accordions.

Very simple, just do what I said. You run the entire operation yourself and since the failure rate is very minimal, it's essentially a guaranteed income. However much you invest, you double it monthly (about, I did a super rough calculation but I think that's about correct), and you need like $50-100 minimum to invest a month to run a comfortable setup. I haven't done it yet myself because I've been hearing about this bot nuke coming up (and because I'm lazy) and because all my money is tied up in various drugs at the moment

You can transfer the gold manually from the bots to a separate account that you use solely to trade gold to gold buyers. You find these by going to Sythe.org, powerbot.org, or really any botting/black market/general rulebreaking rs community.

A good bot to use is http://www.powerbot.org/community/topic/801405-frogs-grinder-dragon-scales-mud-runes-goat-horns-chocolate-bars/
By grinding desert goat horns at current market prices you can make around 526k per hour (assuming the bot grinds 3.35k horns per hour on average) per account. With 5 accounts running for 14 hours a day (that seems to be a good amount of time), you'd make 36.8m a DAY. 1.104 BILLION a month. Assuming you manage to sell all that money in bulk at a low price (say, $0.20 per m if you're very desperate to move all that gold fast and don't want to have a multi-billion gp inventory building up), you'd make $550 minus costs for account membership and 2 servers (5*7.95+2*30=100) you'd make $450 a month by doing nothing but checking up on the bots from time to time using VPN from your home computer. The 2 servers will allow for a really smooth botting experience.

Data Entry, my friend. Motherfuckin' Data Entry.

I worked for several companies, factories and such. I got paid around $13/hr starting out, $15 after I had some experience, and it was mostly just me sitting in a climate controlled office setting with my earbuds in 20 hours a week. All I had to do was sit there in this comfortable office chair all day and get in a certain amount of time sheets and work orders into the system before the end of each day.

Thing was, I was (and am) really fucking good at touchtyping. Usually around 60-70 WPM minimum and 120-140 WPM maximum (depending on the words I'm typing, and whether I'm just copying shit or thinking of stuff off of the top of my head). So, I could get all of my work for the day done in an hour or two, and spend the rest of the time surfing the internet and playing the game "N". I was even able to finish that game from start to finish over the summer that I worked there, lol.

Only real requirement is that you can touchtype at least 40 WPM (there are tons of free practice tests and tutorials online, google that shit). 60 would be better but you don't even need that. You can sign up with multiple temp agencies and they'll just get you jobs for you, you don't even have to look they just tell you where to go and you show up for the interview and as long as you don't pull your dick out you basically have the job. As long as you get in the amount of work they expect of you every day, they could care less what you do with yourself for the rest of the time. Every once in a while (like maybe once a day, sometimes once a week) my boss would show up and just be like, "hey, everything going well? Getting your work done?" and I'd just be like, "Yeah." and he'd leave and I'd go back to my music and my gaming.

You're on 420chan, if you post here a lot you're ALREADY typing all of the time. There's no reason NOT to know how to touchtype at a decent level by now, and if you're on the computer all of the time it's an invaluable skill (learn how to increase your 10-key speed as well, also free online). So, if for some reason you don't know atm, start learning anyways, it'll always be useful and save you a lot of time.

tl;dr I basically got paid to sit on my ass, surf the internet, listen to music/podcasts and not talk to anyone. You actually get paid pretty well too. No customers to deal with ever.

It's monotonous as fuck OP, but at the same time easy because of said monotony. Also doesn't require a college degree. I think it'd be right up your alley, OP, you should check out Data Entry (and maybe temp work at temp agencies, too). Should fit your lazy lifestyle perfectly.

Personally, I'd rather be an engineer where I get paid a lot more money, get a lot more respect, and I'll constantly be engaged and challenged by my work, learning new stuff all of the time. But hey, to each his own. Data Entry is just my summer job.

I got a job at an electroplating company, I wanna say in May or something, and got hired on in August. My advice is make sure you go with a reputable service; nothing sucks worse than rolling up for day one of your new job, seeing some run-down ass abandoned looking building, and thinking Jesus Christ, am I working for the mob or something? Most day labor places are shitty work, and no guarantee as to how steady they'll be, but an upside is that if it's a one-day assignment type of place, you can get paid that day.
But if you want something like what I got, go in to a major temp agency that specializes in longer-term assignments and temp-to-hire jobs. Make it clear in your interview that you WANT to work, because they deal with a fuckton of people who only work long enough to get a check and then quit/no-show. Same thing when you get to the job. Bust ass. My first day on the job, at the end of the day when everyone else was standing around the time clock, I was at my work area pushing a broom. People told me hey, you know you're allowed to quit early, right? I just smiled and nodded, kept doing what I was doing. Then the president/coo of the company (and the lady who I reported to that day to begin my assignment) came out and told me to quit for the day, with a big smile on her face. Same thing the next day, except I was cleaning up a minor chemical spill with a shop-vac or something. I kept it up, and a couple months later my boss (aforementioned president/coo) was buying myself and my roommate (who I got the job there) lunch, just for being awesome, doing good work, not clock-watching, etc.

tl;dr - temp agencies can work out alright if you pick the right one and bust ass for them. go in, be a few minutes early every day, be the last one out everyday, shit gets noticed.

OP, I have your dream job. Work for the railroad. My friends brother-in-law used to get night shifts there, now he works days, but I'll let you fap to this.
Show up after everyone else goes home, work until midnight or one, by yourself, in a nice ass office.
His job consisted of showing up, checking the train schedules/routing, making sure nothing fucked up, watching tv/movies, browsing the internet, eating food, and occasionally doing work related stuff.
Starts at $20 or so an hour, and you get guaranteed raises of a few bucks or more every year.
That's not really what your typical newbie will be doing, but he got rushed in there as opposed to working in the yard first. He doesn't have a HS degree, just a GED. He's got it made.

>Dear Op,

I knew a guy who was antisocial as all hell - not like he had aspergers or anything, he was just an arsehole - and he got himself a security guard job at the airport. He worked nights, guarding a large storage hangar that was mostly empty, and all he had to do was a walkaround of the place every hour or so. He never had any trouble, not so much as a wild marsupial stuck in the toilet, so he just spent the night gaming on a laptop and went through a Maccas 24 hour drive-through on the way home.

On the downside, you'll need a security license (or local equivalent) before you can start. On the upside, you'll barely see another person if you work nights in a remote location except the very start and end of your shift, you'll be given lots of time to sit and ponder your navel and the world will always need security guards.

What the fuck is up with everyone telling him to do drugs? I work as a goddamn pharmacy tech in a retail chain and dealing actual drugs seems like too much human interaction, to me. You've got shitheads hitting you on the phone all day, people constantly wanting to do the shit with you - and what's worse, you have to oblige ALL of it, because it's your goddamn livelihood. And god forbid your source gets jail time or you get robbed, you're shit out of luck, motherfucker.

OP do the data entry thing. Just be careful with agencies, because some of them are fucking shitty and WILL fire you for no reason, first chance they get. Speaking from experience, the temp model exists because it keeps unions out, keeps pay/benefits down, and provides the employers with a comfortable level of immunity to wrongful termination lawsuits coming from the most abused, undervalues members of their workforce.

I got fired on a temp-to-hire data entry gig after like a week, just this month, because they *thought* I was going to hack their computers from some comment I made about having done a project on password security and social engineering during the training session on exactly those two things. And the temp job before that I got fired after a year because WHOOPS, OUTSOURCING THE BUILDING TO INDIA. So yeah, they're some of the best money you can get with little education and little intent to do real labor - but the price is your security. At least when you're firmly planted in a retail job, they want you there. The pharmacy was glad to have me back (lol).

I should say it's not the agencies who fire you, but rather the jobs they assign you to. The agencies just do absolutely nothing to back your ass on anything and some of them actually have policies that state that if you get terminated from a job that they find you, you're done. No more jobs through that agency. That's how this last one was.

in general it wasnt toooo bad. i mean it was boring as hell and sometimes people bitched but i guess because it wasnt a corperate chain its not the same.

start a minecraft server, get it popular, build a strong staff team. advertise around, post your server on 10+ voting websites. offer voting rewards ingame, along with rewards for reffering a friend to play the server. It is easy to get 500 players to login and try your server in the first month, and when you get a dedicated player base you can start selling VIP for $10-30. Some days i wake up to find out i made $200 while i slept.
Fuck bosses, start your own online business. Best part is, you dont have to pay any of the 'staff' that do all of the work. You can leave the server for weeks or months at a time, leaving your unpaid staff to do all the work and deal with all the customers.
When successful, people follow this exact model and make $30-40k per year.
I dont try that hard, i only made $10k last year, but its really good weed money.

a couple summers back I had about 15 f2p accounts doing various things, and it can be more upkeep than you might think. a lot of the times the bots get fucked up, and seeing as how RS3 came out, I'm really not sure what the means for bots. your figures sound nice, but you really can't find how much you make until you actually have the money due to market fluctuations, and thousands of other bots moving to the most profitable method constantly. i know there are definitely people who manage to pull the botting thing off, but you really have to be dedicated to it, and not just click a button in the morning and pressing a key at night. also keep in mind that a lot of the scripts that are actually decent are usually not free

Not only is tipping against policies, it can get you fired. I got away with a lot of tips though, such a small town, a big store that's going way downhill, got out of that shithole while I could after 6 years.
One old lady even gave me a hundred bucks before Christmas, free shit, free meals upstairs, you know potlucks, pizza socials, etc.
I'd just grab my food and go out to my car because after a certain point everyone just got worse and worse as people, after about 5 years I lost my patience with them. And the news was always on upstairs and downstairs, bad fucking vibes and they just feed on it like leaches. And the music, fuck, the goddamn music...
It's not that bad man, just smoke up and enjoy the ridiculousness. It's the managers you'll grow to love, their determination to boss people around makes them into predictable characters and your life becomes like a movie like office space.

I was making 11.20 an hour working a lame retail gig last year while living on my own. Getting the cheapest available place in the 'you won't get stabbed here' neighbourhood ran me $800 a month, heat and water $110-120, food around $100 a month, shitty basic internet $45. 40 hours a week of 11.20 left me with take home pay of roughly $1300, when I could get 40 hours (rare). ~1300 - ~1050 left me with ~$250 to "play" with when all the bills were paid.

But those bills didn't include gas money, a cell phone, cable, beer, any nice things, so I really had almost 0 left. My car stopped working, the mechanic handed me a bill for $1100, now I'm totally broke and I've had to move back in with my parents. It is way too easy to say "be thrifty", you have instead been very fortunate to live in a low cost area.

$10 an hour thrift in this area (central canada) would mean living with multiple roommates in a small apartment with no frills eating Mr. Noodle 3 times a day. And even then you'd never have any savings :S

I've just finished my degree with a 2:1 and there is literally nothing out there I couldn't have got if I had left school at 16. What the hell? I would prefer the sort of job that OP is talking about but all security jobs require extra training and a qualification, which I can't afford. I have been applying for call centre work and retail jobs, mostly out of desperation and have a phone interview tomorrow for a retail chain that I'm kind of hoping I don't get (minimum wage Christmas temp job, basically).

I'm in the UK (specifically Northern Ireland) so does anyone know where a guy could start to look for work? Living with parents on job seeker's allowance is depressing as fuck.

Picture related: I would like to be a monkey in a suit, if anyone knows of any paying jobs.

most IMPORTANT : Find out your Jungian Type - It'll help you find a job that fits your personality. The check out Holland code - this will tell you what kind of job scene your personality is suited the most for.

i'll suggest taking a year to learn a skill - and then get a job freelancing - elance.com is what you are looking for.

Start with like 10$

Bet on black for like 0.20 $ ... You choosed wrong? Bet on black again with 0.40$ ... Still no luck? Bet 0.80...Damn still no luck . Bet 1.60 and woila you just earned money this time. Now start again with the 0.20 bet ... Dont bet to high because remember. Every time you loose you have to double the bet to earn back your money + the first bet (in this case 0.20 $).

How so?
It's the most economically way of betting (Not including advantage playing)
It allows you the most amount of plays, But it doesn't have the highest payout unless you're there for hours on end.
But quite simply, If you ever lose, Your next bet will get you it back + a little extra.
So you will only ever lose if you have a ridiculously long, long losing streak.

I personally hold back until I have a feel for the players/cards/horses. Then when I see a good opportunity, I jump on it with 1/4 ~ 1/2 of available funds. It's not the best method, But if you're smart it'll net you a lot.

However.
You will find that most betting company have a tendency to ban the step up betters(First technique) Because mathematically speaking, They rarely lose But don't take much.
Whereas my technique can generally win you a lot, Unfortunately though most of the time you're just pumping up your bookies account instead.

I'm sure RS3 has them redoing all their bots now. I've been looking on torrent sites and I just can't trust them.
I have this idea for making money of Runescape though, marketing.
I've been seeing a lot of "drop parties," lately. I figure if I can find someone to put 5 bucks in my paypal I will do a drop party of my own, 2 mil each and promote their website/company.
It's gives people wasting their time a reward for visiting a site, maybe following a Twitter, liking a FB, I'm saving up for it right now, but I have a feeling it's going to be a hit.
Only problem is how many clients can you get in one month? The projections are unpredictable.

I do really like the idea, It's like a typical party with banner on the walls.

But since you are in a game world, EVERYTHING is logged, All it takes is one guy to point out that it's advertising and that's it your entire business market falls down. Along with all the names of companies you've worked with.

However.
If you call it a "fansite", You're more than welcome to invite to and advertise that website. This however does not allow you to advertise or promote other websites through runescape.
It'll have to be through your "fansite" where people find the adverts.

I'm not sure if you're aloud to promote other peoples fansites though, It could be something you should look into. I'm sure they'll pay more for advertising ingame, Than you would get from adverts on a fansite.

True, I'll have to watch out for that. I forgot how serious they take their game-space lol.
But like you said, if I make it seem like a regular RS fansite though I should be fine.
But then if change the username back to the company's name "ominously in the URL" later, then all those followers will be none the wiser.

There IS a way, OP.
I know a guy who knew a guy who worked at this place with this guy who had to write code every week for his company.

He got paid really well, and every week they'd give him the definitions or parameters or limiters or some fucking thing (I forget the specific terms, I don't really computers) and he'd do it.

So he got lazy and hired some random monkey from China to do it FOR him for like a sixth of what he made per week, and it was going good for a really long time.

Then he got TOO lazy because he didn't wanna tell the guy what he had to do every week, so he gave this dude direct access to the VPN of the company or something.

Company watcher was like "ey boss do we have chinese workers" and boss was like "no" because the fucking server showed someone logging into it from China.

So everyone went RED ALERT and they figured out the cause and fired the guy.

Dude had it fucking MADE FOR LIFE and he bombed it.

If you're not gay or on intravenous drugs, selling blood pays alright. First time involves a long physical to make sure you don't have HIV/HepC/whateverthefuck.

If you're scared of needles, you can try dumpster diving in mall parking lots for shit the stores throw out and reselling whatever works online. Just make sure you know the local laws on it because some places consider it a nuisance and don't fucking do it if the dumpster is fenced in and there's a "No Tresspassing" sign.

night shift unarmed security guard for a factory here. let's see how well my job matches up to your desires:

>contact with customers
I guard a factory storage lot. there aren't really "customers". I'll maybe process shipping manifests for 1 or 2 truck carries a night, if even, and I could have about an hour of checking employee IDs at the end of the day. other than that, aint no one.

>boss contact
I see my boss for an hour and a half a day...and that's IF I see him.

>no work; can browse Chan's

nigga, I'm at work right now on 3 chans and on an irc channel. I was playing San Andreas earlier.

>steady
I have guaranteed 40hrs per week, and security is a job where the company is literally just selling hours of people watching shit. firing someone is unheard of and quitting causes a shit storm because you literally can't run a site short staffed without violating the contract your firm has with its client.

security in a safe area (I.e. not ghetto guard or bar shit) is basically free money.

it was a small warehouse so I could do it by myself, but when we had a full crew there it was shit easy, you just have to walk a lot and be okay with going on ladders
the only times I really saw my boss were when I was clocking in/out or at break times

well, I'm a guard in a different state that has easier requirements than Illinois....

anyway, 10 seconds in google tells me you need something called a PERC card (I guess that's illinois' background check card?) + a 20 hour unarmed security course.

If you really really want it, I guess you'd get your PERC card and then google for companies that train security guards, pay for a course, and get qualified or whatever. Then it's a trip to craigslist's jobs/security section from there.

Like I said, I'm not in illinois, and my state has no employee-side red tape for unarmed guard qualification, so I can't really help you beyond being a human google bot.

Friends and finding good bulk rates, are the key to dealing drugs.

Never pay more than 50% of retail value for your product, unless the product is already paid for, and you'd miss the sale otherwise.

Beyond that, find good friends to hang out with while you do it. Sales is easy if you're happy, and hard as fuck when you're not. Also, the friend likely will buy your product before going home for the night, so even if it's a bust, you should still have enough to cover a night out.

Now, if you want to make real money, without going kingpin, you want to sell accessories too. Shit, even if you just hit up the dollar store, you can retail snacks, glow sticks, and shit for good profit margins at parties. Blunt wraps, papers, pipes, scales, they buy em and trade for em.

>Of course every single fucking job makes a difference. thats how society today works, every job is interconnected.

the vast majority of jobs that exist are absolutely worthless, they consume our time and they consume our bodies. you're trying to make it sound like it's a good thing that people should spend the majority of their time while they're awake doing repetitive tasks away from their family for people of a superior status, but it's those kinds of nonsensical habits that have fucked us up.

work sucks - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ArkJmUOIqM

"There were vast fortunes to be made, after all, in an economy based on mass production and organized to favor the large corporation rather than the small business or the family farm. But mass production required mass consumption...

Cubberley - who was dean of Stanford's School of Education, a textbook editor at Houghton Mifflin, and Conant's friend and correspondent at Harvard - had written the following in the 1922 edition of his book Public School Administration: "Our schools are . . . factories in which the raw products (children) are to be shaped and fashioned.. . . And it is the business of the school to build its pupils according to the specifications laid down."

Once you understand the logic behind modern schooling, its tricks and traps are fairly easy to avoid. School trains children to be employees and consumers; teach your own to be leaders and adventurers. School trains children to obey reflexively; teach your own to think critically and independently... Mandatory education serves children only incidentally; its real purpose is to turn them into servants."

Alright OP, I have a few jobs that I do and make damn good money doing it. This is exactly what I did before I got a better job and went to school.

> BIOlife
These things are sprouting up like hotcakes and it's worth it. You give 1 pint of blood and boom! $75! You can do this 3 times a month and make a max of $225 a month.

> Growing and selling weed
This is easier to get into than you think, its just getting the contact. Once you got it either A invest a little time and energy into getting seeds and growing a crop, or buy an Oz and flip it with friends selling 1/8th. You should damn hear double your money on your Oz making $400-600.

So in one month you can make about 800 to +1500 just selling weed and blood depending on how much you can flip a month.

Now Uncle Sam loved to know a lot about you and where you are getting this money from so a legitimate job is needed to make the GOV happy and feds off your back.
> Security Guard
Easy fucking job with pay way better than minimum wage, guaranteed. You will have to give up about 8-10 hours a day and possibly work a lot of nights, but pay is decent. But like everyone else you do nothing, I entertained myself with reading, internet, texting, and smoking weed. I made about $400 a week.

> Movie theater projectionist.
You play the fucking movie, you walk out. When the movie ends you go in and shut off the movie and wait around for the next showing. This was the job I took after I quite the security gig, here I made $12.50/h. I like the surety guard did nothing but read, play video games, and get fucking baked. Now depending on the theater

So right now I am at 1200-1900 a month, or so, and only work 4 days a week with rent at $400, gasoline at $60 a month, utilities, internet, car insurance, $350, and $200 to spend on food and the rest to fuck around with.

Used to work in a supermarket deli. Fucking hated it. It was an upscale supermarket in a richer town so basically everybody who wasn't an immigrant was a MASSIVE douchebag. Used to have people come in and order more prosciutto than I could buy with my whole paycheck and that shit is a pain in the ass to slice, especially if you have a fucked up SC joint like I did.

There were a couple times when it got really slow and they'd send me over to produce - that was really chill, if you didn't mind helping people find stuff. Basically half the produce department spent all day baked off their ass and just restocked vegetables and answered questions. Seems like after a while it'd get boring but it always seemed like a step up over deli, cashier, bagger, etc.

OP here, 4 years later, now 28yo.

I spontaneously decided to check out /howto/ and was very surprised to see this thread still floating around, specially since, when I last saw it 4 years ago, it only had a few replies.

When I started this thread I didn't think context was necessary but, apparently, it is.

Back when I was 19, my first job ever lasted about 9 months, it was in a fucking call center for Time Warner Cable; needless to say it's a shit company with fucking IDIOTS for customers who are also very angry love to yell at you. Said job also had the perk and blessing of having 8, yes, 8 mother-fucking direct bosses. Shit scarred me for life.

I actually did go to trade school after that, in order to become a cabinet-maker and work with wood and shit, be my own boss etc. but, my drunk faggot uncle got kicked out of his place by his ex-wife who took all his money, and the shit-stain's mere presence fucked up my plans.

Plan B was a solution provided by this thread but, instead, I used what little I had of my savings to start a college career in tourism... which I couldn't finish due to money.

A few weeks ago I got my second job ever, yup, customer service agent for Amazon, another call center that deals with faggots all day, every day... I couldn't take it and quit after a little over a month, so, basically, this quasi-PTSD I have made me do >>32037 unintentionally.

According to my calculations, a little over a month working for a better-paying shithole call center that I applied to recently and have good chances of being hired-for, and I'll be set to pay for the rest of my career.

With that said and having read the thread, I am now giving very serious thought to buying a gun and taking the necessary courses to score a security gig. Turns out the only thing I give a shit about anyway is martial arts, and I've been practicing for over 10 years now, which could be a selling point for such a gig.

I worked security for 2 years at various strip mining operations. Pretty much consisted of sitting in my car all night playing SNES games on a PSP, often getting fucking wasted, and smoking a ton of weed. Sometimes friends would show up and we would sit around on top of the mountain and drink. I'd sober up enough by the time morning came and everyone headed out and would drive home.

One time my boss showed up just to check on the place and I had like 3 other people in my car at the time smoking a joint with me. Bossman didn't care. Just told me he came to check in, then he left, never said a word about it.

Security is best job ever. Pays well and you don't have to do a goddamn thing but be there.

Having read through this entire thread, and as someone who can routinely type at 85+ WPM on a slow day, can anyone reccomend a good place to start out with telecommuted data entry? I've had decent experience with MTurking in the past (especially with those dreadful receipt-transcription HITs), but would like something a bit less mercurial.

Currently have no qualifications or anything like that apart from a GED and the aforementioned typing speed. Temp agencies are a possibility in the future, but as a collegefag still livinig with parents I kinda have my hands full as is.

I have come back to this thread many times over the last 4 years. It's really one of the the best reads i've had on any chan. It's always cool to see an OP post back after many years.

Unfortunately i'm back on the no-job list myself in about a month due to health complications and just plain quitting my job.

I feel with anybody who have worked phone support jobs. My very first job was a 1st line supporter at the biggest ISP in my country. Not only did I have to contend with angry and/or stupid apes not RTFM'ing an INCREDIBLY simple manual and having to guide them all through resetting their routers and TV receivers, but i had to deal with this while every FUCKING SECOND of my time was counted, recorded and nitpicked for shit pay only a few bucks above welfare. I got a heavy case of phone-PTSD to this day because of this shit... I ended up getting anxiety attacks whenever someone called me, even friends and family

once, the entire cable technician staff decided to go on strike for a fucking week, and just guess who had to take ALL the flak.
Did I get a bonus for my good performance during that week? heh, FUCK no... I got a sucky bunch of coupons for their piece of shit "service" so I could have cheaper net for few months (I had my subscription at a competitor who actually offered a decent router, good support and excellent uptime).

For the next job I moved to Germany to work at a jewlery company... Here I got a harsh lesson in the company-wide effects of bad (or, rather, non-existing) leadership.
I worked there as a programmer in a small team of 3 (me, the CIO and a web dev/IT support guy). The place, the CEO and the co-workers were really cool people to work with. The IT department was running really well, and we started really getting shit done after I got up to speed. IT was respected by all, and I expanded my duties to server maintenance and sysadmin work.
In the end of 2015 we had implemented nearly half a million lines of super stable automation code (for interfacing with a shit ERP system), along with a support ticket system, company-wide network monitoring, a warehouse status display system and much, much more.

Shit was pretty good, the pacing was optimal and everything went well untila few months later when it was announced the CEO got the boot and the company owners would grab the reins from here on in.
Essentially what happened, was that the entire company turned into stressful shit within just a few days. Before, we had maybe one or two calls a day for really minor stuff (a dialog box or a paper jam), but after that we got absolutely flooded... literally EVERYBODY in the entire company (even 10yr+ veterans) had more or less "forgotten" basic, well-documented, precautions, procedures and rules regarding the ERP system and other areas.
After a a week of that hell, the owner suddenly decided that we didn't need a ticketing system or network monitoring (all made on free and Open source stuff as well, so not because of expenses),and that was when I decided to turn in my notice.

Currently I work as a sysadmin for a company doing software for govt purposes, and right now, it's pretty cushy as I work from home (health complications, as mentioned above), but again I decided to quit... Not only because of EU's GDPR laws threatening my job security (and the company entirely because our code is actually shit), but because of a very egocentric boss with a bad case of the Dunning-Kruger Effect (aka. "i'm always right"-syndrome) and the fact that my dept (yes, I'm the boss of IT..... but only on paper) is constantly treated like slave labor or Indian Microsoft scammers (especially by our devs, which btw are treated like fucking kings) and not a shit is given.

If my country didn't have an extreme case of "educational inflation" (by this, I mean, if you want to even just make sandwiches, there's a 3-year education for that... and YES you'll have to take it or have VERY low chances of getting hired), i'd happily move on to a different line of work.

I've thought about getting into photography proper, and possibly offer photogrammetry and photo drone services... possibly combine that with RL or digital painting (a hobby of mine).

On the other hand, that shit requires heavy equipment... which i'm not able to lift... due to my health (busted shoulder joints at age 29 ain't fun -_- )

I'm not sure if I got it right.. In the german company, why did they suddenly start calling you for minor shit that they actually knew? Because the owners treated them like shit and they wanted to take it out on someone?

I worked a call-center job for a cellphone company for a couple months. The metrics system was terrible. If they actually cared about solutions for their customers they wouldn't pressure the workers to keep call times under six minutes or whatever amount it actually was. To get a bonus we had to meet all the metrics and convince the caller to upgrade their plan, buy some new gadget, or switch to paperless bills. Generally the caller had some technical issue or they were lied to by the salesman at the store (who are on commission, so its in their interest to make as many sales as possible, leading some to lie,) so they weren't interested in a sales pitch. If you wanted to get a bonus you'd have to be sly or manipulative, or lucky. Anyways, I didn't stay there long. Thankfully no phone ptsd, if anything the opposite. Its super easy talking on the phone now, and I often unintentionally transition to a phone voice out of habit.

Caterings a good job to get into because there's catering jobs everywhere and something to fall back on if a better job goes awry. IT sounds better, but I'm talking no-degree job seeking.
